Fallout 4 Graphics Controversy: What Are Your Expectations?
From the moment Fallout 4 was revealed earlier this year, it has been a subject of some debate: The graphics just don't appear to be all that impressive.
And now, with a bunch of leaked footage circulating, many are voicing their concerns about the game's visual prowess. This leads me to the obvious question:
What are your expectations concerning the game? Do you think a lot of this is just unfounded rumor and the finished project will undoubtedly look better than anything we've seen to date? Or are you legitimately worried? Maybe you don't care either way...? You're allowed to not care, I guess.
Let me say this- Yes, I've been playing it and no, I can't tell you anything because Bethesda would get all upset. I won't tell you what I'm seeing nor will I hazard a guess as to how gamers and critics will respond, as that would qualify as a hint. It's true that some footage we've seen hasn't exactly leaped off the screen but then again, shouldn't we bear the world's massive size in mind? Fallout 4 is absolutely gigantic and in order to create such a world - and one that appears to be entirely seamless, as opposed to The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, where two huge major sections were broken up - the developers have to make some concessions, yes?
That's just the nature of the open-world structure. At the same time, perhaps a game like The Witcher 3 is a good example of where our current expectations lie. Should Fallout 4 look as good or better than CD Projekt Red's effort? And what about comparing to other games like Assassin's Creed Syndicate and Grand Theft Auto V? I could toss in one of The Elder Scrolls titles but we haven't seen one yet on next-gen systems, so maybe that isn't fair. The question remains: What do you want to see? What are you expecting? And if you're disappointed, will that have a negative impact on your overall enjoyment of the game?
